The coastguard retrieved the weapons from the seabed after two men on board dropped them when a Bahraini helicopter approached, the ministry said.
There was no immediate comment from Iran on the Bahraini statement. A Shiite-led opposition movement in Bahrain continues to press for reform in the country, which hosts the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet. Iran has strongly denied any manner of interference stating that it only supports attempts to address human rights violations in the tiny Persian Gulf state.
This latest incident follows a number of failed attempts to smuggle explosive materials into Bahrain recently. [ID:nL5N0Z41PZ].
More families have expressed their full denunciation and condemnation of flagrant Iranian interferences in the internal affairs of the Kingdom of Bahrain and stressed Bahrain’s genuine Arab and Islamic identity. [ID:nL5N1050DF]. However hardline commentators in Iran have occasionally laid a territorial claim to Bahrain, a Sunni-ruled monarchy closely allied to dominant Gulf Arab power Saudi Arabia.
Two Bahraini suspects were arrested after the Bahrain Coast Guard, in coordination with the Police Aviation Unit and Bahrain Royal Naval Force, intercepted a vessel heading towards Bahrain, the Interior Ministry said. It named the two as Mahdi Subah Abdulmohsen Mohammed, 30, and Abas Abdulhussain Abdullah Mohammed, also 30.
It said the first suspect received military training in Iran during August 2013 that included the manufacturing and use of explosive ordinance and improvised explosive devices, as well as firearms training at an Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ camp.
